I cant stop shaking. I read every line… every argument every frikin hard to read paragraph because it was the least I could do.

Every argued paragraph for Morgans release was followed by the line ‘the argument fails’


The argument failed guys,…

I’m earmarking this to hopefully add my thoughts to tomorrow evening. I’m cautious of riling myself up and letting this keep me awake when I need to be fresh for work tomorrow morning.

I am not ready to talk about Morgan.

Just can’t.

"You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands."

Isaiah 55:12 . Now I’m not one for biblical quotes, but I love the image of this.  (via brushstrokesandshutterclicks)

Oh gosh, this is a blast from the past. I read the first line and it immediately became melodic in my head. We used to sing this at primary school a lot. Or perhaps not a lot, but the way we sung it - starting slow and speeding up each round, quite low, but rising and falling - felt very significant to me. It was very rhythmic. 

It probably had a lot to do with my love of nature and the imagery of things that seem so permeant moving.

I’m fairly certain it’s also something the whole school would sing it in  final assemblies to celebrate the year sixes moving on to secondary school. I have a feeding they didn’t for my year and I was livid about it. (We were also given pocket dictionaries.)

Except the song version went: 

"You shall go out with joy
and be led forth with peace
and the mountains and the hills shall bend forth before you
there will be shouts of joy 
and the trees of the field shall clap
shall clap their hands
and the trees of the field shall clap their hands
and the trees of the field shall clap their hands
and the trees of the field shall clap their hands
and you’ll go out with joy.”

Then we’d repeat.

And we were clapping too, of course. I grew up going on walks on the South Downs, where the wind was often strong enough to sting, and chill, and feel like it was going to lift me up as a child. The song is connected to those sensations and experiences in my head. It’s powerful, but also slightly fearful, perilous, hopeful, but also dark.

This book has found a new home!

This is fucking stunning! Where do you get your cloth and end pages from?

( Hi, this is pondweed’s personal blog! )

The fabric for this book was some I’d brought a few years back because I liked the design, but hadn’t found a use for. It came from The Brighton Sewing Centre, which I talked about in a post here.

But it’s simply printed cotton typically used in quilting projects. =) I then use bondaweb/heat-n-bond on the back, and attach tissue paper to seal it so glue (hopefully) doesn’t seep through. 

The paper came from Paperchase, oddly enough! They had some on sale after Christmas and I couldn’t help myself. It’s quite thick paper - and there was a black equivalent also with gold foil, which I snapped up too.

I think I might have to look out for some more fabric like this! I had no idea this combination would prove so popular.

My amazing girlfriend found me a copy of this and is keeping it safe until I can go up again. ❤️.

I feel like a dumb American, but is this a popular paper/magazine in the UK? Kinda like how People Magazine is here?

It is just a sunday paper, i wouldn’t say its a popular one either sadly, most people read the observer/daily mail on a sunday but it was a headline so it would have been seen by everyone at least :3(my other half bought me a copy too lol)

Thanks! I was curious since everyone I know from the UK is posting about it.

I can scan it in if you want to read it? I don’t think it contains any info we don’t already know but it warns off tourists from visiting during their holidays which is good because people are booking them about now for summer :)

There might be more features/info in the paper itself, but you can read the article here.
